The Spanish festival adds more acts to the line-up.

MIRA Festival has revealed the first names for its upcoming chapter. The annual event is set to host a wide-ranging programme of DJ sets and live digital and audiovisual performances. Floating Points will team up with Hamill Industries for a live audiovisual show, and Lena Willikens has been booked for a special back-to-back set with Alicia Carrera as part of MIRA’s afterparty schedule. Aphex Twin collaborator Weirdcore, Skee Mask, Giant Swan and Blanck Mass will also appear on the live programme.

Elsewhere on the schedule, there’s Bristol producer Batu whose show will be accompanied by visuals from Russian artist Leeza Pritychenko. Roly Porter and visual artist MFO – who’s previously collaborated with Aïsha Devi – step up for the programme, along with Nihiloxia, Schweflelgelb, Ossia, DJ Marcelle and People You May Know.

MIRA Festival will take place on 5-9 November at Fabra i Coats, Fàbrica de Creació and other venues in Barcelona. It promises to focus on “exhibition, dissemination and education”.
